Doesn’t soup just feel like a big hug from the outside?! It does for me! It’s the ultimate comfort food and gives me all the cozy feels, especially on a cold fall day. With fall right around the corner I am so excited to experiment with soups! They are so nourishing for your body and a great way to get all your veggies in. This tortilla soup is a great alternative to tortillas if you are trying to stay low carb or just want something to warm your insides!
